A group of Bern, of which, for the record of a single album, briefly included some well-known jazz musicians. Swiss jazz trumpeter, Hans Kennel, a member of local groups as Alpine Jazz Herd, Broken Dreams, Habarigani, Hans Kennel Quintet, Jazz Community, Magog, The Modern Jazz Group Freiburg, The Mytha Horns, Steve Lacy 6 , Steve Lacy Double Sextet and the Swiss All Stars. Saxophonist Bruno Spoerri, and also actively experimenting in electronic music, starting already in 1965, mainly in music for films, TV jingles, etc.

The exact same lineup had recorded an album a year earlier under the name of 8 (or Hans Kennel Octet) called "8 ?– Live At The Rössli, Steinen" ( which I have tried to get for ages, but to no avail... does any of our beloved visitors have a copy? I am sure  am not the only one that would appreciate a digital copy of it! (Thanks in advance!)
